I love the look of mesh avatars.  Even the coolest of classic avatars can’t compete with the extreme level of detail created by all those extra vertices.  Let’s face it, that perfect heart-shaped derriere will never happen on a classic avatar.

Thanks to the introduction of Bakes On Mesh (BOM), generous creators, and a bunch of phenomenal gifts scattered across the grid, this is the perfect time to ditch the old trusty classic avatar for a newer, smoother, mesh model.  Best of all, it won’t cost you a single Linden.  No kidding!

In Stylishly Distanced I featured the upgraded eBody v.8.6 gift bodies.  Today, I’ve got the perfect, and boy do I mean PURRRRRRRRRRRFECT, mesh head to pair with it! Genus Project is giving group memebers a fully featured Bento rigged, Omega and BOM ready mesh head.

Simply walk over to Vaxer to pickup today’s final outfit.  Indy is a complete outfit in a box, consists of pants/shirt/boots, and can be worn by mesh and classic avatars.  Since the pieces are separates, they can be mixed and matched quite easily with several of the items included in previous looks to give you well over 10 different looks from today’s haul.

| EYES |Arata Shouten.Skin Fair 2019 gift – mesh eyes w/6 texture HUD 6DOO/CATWA/Genus/LAQ (free)

Though I’ve assembled six outfits, there is still one last store to visit.  Arata Shouten has generously set out their 2019 Skin Fair mesh eyes gift as a store freebie for all visitors.  These eyes have a captivating quality that enhances the look of any avatar.   The gift includes a  texture HUD plus six sets of mesh eyes sized for 6DOO, Catwa, Genus, and LAQ heads.
If you don’t have any of those mesh heads, but would like to  wear the eyes, it’s not a problem.  Since the mesh eyes are unrigged they’ll work with any mesh head or classic avatar by simply positioning/resizing in edit mode.  Classic avatars will also need to wear an eye alpha.
Until we meet again, shop happy!
